y tightly by the leadership. republicans, nancy pelosi and reid on the democrat side. very little involvement with anybody else. that is the one thing that bowles and simpson have. obviously they know people in the leadership, so it is unclear exactly how much influence these guys still have even with republicans attend to like bowles and ellen simpson. president obama wants nothing to do with either of them. he's holding fast to get them up. talking to legislative aides, they tell me no deal this week, nothing before thanksgiving and here is the question. when after thanksgiving? who knows, maybe they will intervene and will part the red sea. at least get an extension, but what i'm hearing, does not happen. here is the real issue, guys. the pressure on them mount is of course christmas comes. a huge selling season, huge for the economy. if everybody believes that taxes are going up, a fiscal cliff across the board tax increases, that'll be a real problem for the economy. and the leadership knows that. once thanksgiving is over, the clock starts ticking big-time for these guys and
-door meeting, house speaker john boehner said, quote, i believe we can do this. nancy pelosi said we understand our responsibility. if they fail to act, the bush tax cuts would end on january 1. that's the same day sharp cuts to government spending take effect. economists fear the combination could send the country back into a recession. a train that slammed into a parade float, carrying wounded veterans was moving slower that the posted speed limit. safety officials in texas say it was going 62 in a 70-mile-per-hour zone and the train applied its emergency brakes before crashing into the trailer. the accident killed four veterans and injured 16 other people. i'm marianne rafferty. now back to "on the record." >> greta: harry reid telling senate republican leaders, no, rejecting a request for a watergate-style select committee to investigate the benghazi attack. earlier, john mccain led the charge for a special committee. but in a letter tonight, senator reid saying there are plenty of committees investigating benghazi and he took aim at senator mccain, saying he missed one of those committee m
a question at nancy pelosi's presser and was soundly booed over his age-related queer. >> i some of your colleagues privately say that your decision to stay on prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and will be hurt -- hurts the party in the long term. what's your response? >> discrimination. >> whoa! >> next! next. >> leader pelosi -- >> i guess -- >> whoa! >> you always ask that question except to mitch mcconnell. >> oh, mitch mcconnell, the senate minority leader is 70 years old. nancy pelosi is 72. in the world of politics, age is kind of a skewed concept. average age of members of the house is 56. and of senators it's 62. i mean, paul ryan is thought of as a young gun. he's 42. that's eight years shy of being a card-carrying member of the aarp. ronald reagan was 69 when he first ran for president. many worried he was too old for the job until his famous quip during a debate. >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> yes, reagan used age to his advantage. but seriously, h
: so, that is the latest on that. also this morning, "nancy pelosi considers leaving post as house democratic leader." "the decision could come as early as tomorrow, wednesday." washington journal will be live from capitol hill tomorrow with several lawmakers from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. to keep you updated on what is happening this week in washington. the looming fiscal cliff, that is what we are talking about with all of you today. how do we avoid it, should entitlement spending be part of the package? james, go head. caller: i had to retire because of back problems or whenever, but i do not get disability, i would not apply for it, it is an entitlement. it is ludicrous to ask people in my age bracket, people who pay for their medicare -- that is what people are not saying. we paid for it for a long time. many of us are sick, we are not asking for anyone to help us along. we are not asking for the government, we paid for this. what it really is is a pyramid scheme. you have to get people working in this country so that they can pay in. it is not the people cheating the system.
cliff issue. we have new comments from nancy pelosi on the fiscal cliff today. let's listen to that. >> would you accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthy. we have seen a possible compromise that would leave rates the same but cap deductions for top earners? >> no. the president made it clear there are not enough -- what you described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> what do you think? does this mean a deal will not get done? >> i think there is desire on both sides to get a deal done. that doesn't mean we will see one. both sides are taken the election to mean that the american people want action. the president has taken it to mean the american people endorsed his so-called balanced approach to balancing the budget. and we saw spirited koopg with the leaders coming out after the meetening a now they mr. get down to the details where to make cuts and revenue increases and can do you do it by just closing loopholes, is that enough or do you have to talk about tax rates in particular think tax rating for the wealthy. that's is whe
mississippi, also john mccormick for massachusetts -- >> are you saying that nancy pelosi and john boehner don't do that? [laughter] >> no, there were no cell phones or fax machines. we answered letters with typewriters. that is a lot of it. they don't really socialize. one reason that joe and i could work together is our new joe and i love him. i wouldn't do anything mean to him. so that is a lot of it. the times have changed so much. in the senate, one of the problems is they got away from regular order. that's also the washington term. what it means of the senate bill to a committee and you have a hearing. you have oversight hearings and the mark of the bill and you have an amendment and tivo. you go to the house and senate. you go to the conference and the senate bill to the president that needs to be signed. they don't do that anymore. even the transportation bill, which they did finally get done this year, it went through a procedure because the house never passed the bill. but they round out getting a transportation bill. it's a combination of things. modern technology and frankly it is
for the white house in years. he joins people like bill clinton, nancy pelosi, ed rendell, new york senator jill brand and republicans talking about it. google hillary clinton 2016 you get more than five million hits. for her part, mrs. clinton insists the answer's no. she's finishing her term as secretary of state. leave as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the
